Steelers Recap

Pittsburgh didn’t pay their best football on Sunday. Ben wasn’t at his best, Antonio Brown didn’t have a highlight reel day and the defense got just one sack. None of it mattered. Pittsburgh got it done. When their offense wasn’t in rhythm, they still put up 24. That’s scary. Against a rookie quarterback in Philly, I’m taking Pittsburgh. Confidently.

Game of the Week: Broncos at Bengals

Cincinnati can contend in the AFC and Denver remains the best team in the league. Can the Bengals upset the Broncos? I definitely think they’re capable. Jeremy Hill needs to get his engine going and the defense has to exploit Siemian at quarterback. I’m just not sure if any of that is going to happen so I’m taking Denver.

Tim Sports Report for 2014 NFL Championship Week

Top 5

1. Seahawks amazing comeback vs. GB

Become first defending champion to make the Super Bowl in 10 years.

2. Jermaine Kearse’s redemption story: During the game, Kearse was thrown to five times and four of those passes resulted in an interception. Wilson didn’t give up on him and threw one pass his way in overtime, which ended in the game-winning score.

3. RB LeGarrette Blount 30 carries for 148 yards, 3 TDs vs. IND

4. RB Marshawn Lynch 25 carries for 157 yards, TD vs. GB

5. QB Tom Brady 23/35 for 226 yards, 3 TDs, INT, 100.4 QBR vs. IND

Worst of the Worst

1. GB kicks five field goals including two inside the 20-yard line, contribute to one of the biggest playoff losses in recent memory.

2. QB Russell Wilson 14/29 for 209 yards, TD, 4 INTs, 44.3 QBR vs. GB

3. QB Andrew Luck 12/33 for 126 yards, 2 INTs, 23.0 QBR vs. NE

4. Colts get 209 total yards on offense, allow 177 on the ground and seven red zone drives in 45-7 throttling.

5. Marshawn Lynch continues press conference charades.

Before I go over my Super Bowl prediction, here are some of the Super Bowl records that are up for grabs on Sunday.

Most Super Bowl MVPs: 3, Joe Montana

Most starts at quarterback: 6, Tom Brady

Highest passer rating: 150.92, Phil Simms, NYG vs. DEN, SB XXI

Lowest passer rating to win game: 22.6, Ben Roethlisberger, PIT vs. SEA, SB XL

Most passing yards: 414, Kurt Warner, STL vs. TEN, SB XXXIV

Most rushing yards: 204, Timmy Smith, WAS vs. DEN, SB XXII

Most receiving yards: 215, Jerry Rice, SF vs. CIN, SB XXIII

Most interceptions: 3, Rod Martin, OAK vs. PHI, SB XV

Most tackles: 12, Gary Brackett, IND vs. NO, SB XLIV

Most sacks: 3, Reggie White, GB vs. NE, SB XXXI and Darnell Dockett, ARI vs. PIT, SB XLIII

Longest field goal: 54 yards, Steve Christie, BUF vs. DAL, SB XXVIII

Super Bowl prediction: NE vs. SEA

I’m not happy about this matchup because I didn’t want to see either of these teams win. The Seahawks are looking to become the first repeat champions in a decade and the Patriots are looking to continue their dynasty reign. I hate Blount and Gronk and I hate Carroll, Lynch and Sherman. Overall, I’m rooting for the Patriots because I just hate the Seahawks too much. It should be a close one, probably about 27-21 New England.

Tim Sports Report for 2014 NFL Week 11

Top 5

1. Eight RBs had over 100 yards this week, five over 150 and two over 200. Also, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon set the NCAA record for rushing yards in a single game (408), proving the point he’s been trying to make all year: running backs still matter.

2. WR Mike Evans 7 receptions for 209 yards, 2 TDs vs. WAS

Evans (21) is the youngest player ever to have a 200-yard receiving game and the first rookie with seven catches for 100 yards and a TD in three straight games.

3. RB Jonas Gray 37 carries for 201 yards, 4 TDs vs. IND

4. RB Jamaal Charles 20 carries for 159 yards, 2 TDs, Fmb vs. SEA

5. RB Le’Veon Bell 33 carries for 204 yards, TD vs. TEN

Worst of the Worst

1. Steelers’ safety Mike Mitchell goes ballistic on Twitter. I wrote a post about this.

2. RB LeGarrette Blount walks off the field in the middle of the game vs. TEN

3. QB Eli Manning 22/45 for 280 yards, TD, 5 INTs, 36.6 QBR vs. SF

4. QB Robert Griffin III 23/32 for 207 TD, 2 INTs, 73.3 QBR vs. TB

5. NFC South Standings: Atlanta 4-6, New Orleans 4-6, Carolina 3-7, Tampa Bay 2-8

Steelers Recap

Overall, the Steelers’ performance on Monday night was frustrating. The offensive fluidity fans had seen just a few weeks ago was gone. The team looked uncoordinated and unorganized. The fact that the Steelers had to come back to win this game was exactly the opposite of what Steelers nation wanted to see on Monday. They, like myself, wanted to see a dominant win against a struggling team. Instead, the Steelers gave the Titans boatloads of confidence going into their next game, while Tomlin needs to start re-evaluating the team depth chart and playbook. Le’Veon Bell and the offensive line were excellent during the second half but against the Titans front seven I think it’s important not to give them too much credit. The fact that Bell ran for over 200 yards and we still almost lost is pretty sad. This bye week could not be more well-timed. They need a break to recuperate some players but they also need to silent these off-the-field issues immediately. Mitchell’s tirade was a catastrophe on so many levels and I’m very happy they cut Blount almost instantaneously, but his actions need to be a reminder to the whole team that this is a team effort and if you’re not happy with your role, then get off the field.

Game of the Week: Dolphins @ Broncos.

I have the Broncos for this game but the Dolphins are surging and looking like a top-ten team right now. Their defense is excellent as I expected and if it weren’t for the lack of play-makers on offense, this team could probably threaten New England. It’s important Denver get’s back on the right track after dropping two of their last three. Expect a close one and don’t be surprised if an upset occurs.

Why I Hope Mike Mitchell Gets Cut

Mike Mitchell was in the news on Tuesday after confrontations with multiple fans over social media. During the Steelers narrow win over the Titans, Mike Mitchell struggled. Especially considering the absence of Troy Polamalu leaving our other safety as 32-year-old Will Allen, Mitchell was given the responsibility of covering the team’s backside.

After jumping in front of Titans’ QB Zach Mettenberger’s first pass and returning it for six points, CB William Gay attempted to repeat the feat on the Titans’ drive late in the second quarter. Mitchell, who again, plays safety so as to provide a safety blanket behind the defense, instead decided to jump a route as well, leaving no one and I mean no one behind to prevent former Steeler Nate Washington from going for a 80-yard touchdown. That, along with some other shoddy secondary play against a rookie quarterback, led to fans saying Mitchell was the Steelers’ worst free agent signing of all-time. That obviously isn’t true and those who have said such things can’t be considered true sports fans or sports-minded intellectuals. I was able to gather that last tip using my brain, some common sense and knowing that no matter how good you are at something, there will always be haters. There will be people who don’t respect you even if you’ve proven to be nearly god-like in your efforts.

QB Tom Brady is a perfect example. I hated Tom Brady for many years and rooted against him because I was tired of seeing the New England Patriots win everything. However, through maturity and some human decency, I’ve been able to comprehend that Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks of all-time. To come through in the clutch as many times as he has and continue to excel despite multiple roster changes is a testament to his leadership and his dedication to the game. Do I consider myself a Tom Brady fan? Definitely not, I still find myself rooting against him a fair amount, but there’s no doubt that I respect him and there’s truly no reason to hate him as a person because let’s be honest, he’s never done anything on or off the field to demonstrate poor character and you can’t say he’s lazy in his profession because evidently he’s not. You can still hate him if you want to and I won’t call you stupid for doing so, but at the same time, you’re stupid.

Now, Mitchell is not one of the greats and never will be, so naturally he should expect more criticism. Some of that is because of obnoxious fans. You don’t respond to them. You don’t give them anything to feed off of. An elementary school counselor could explain this concept if needed.

Mitchell either didn’t pass elementary school, didn’t open his ears or has anger management issues. I’m likely to go with option three but at this point, options one and two are still on the table, especially after Tomlin claims to have told Mitchell not to leap the pile in the Jets game and he did it anyway.

What Mitchell did in response to those tweets was worse than anything that fans could have said to him. Here are some of those tweets:

“Lol, I’ll do no such thing. You on the other hand kill yourself.”

“You’re a moron and obviously a broke b@#$%, begging for money lol. Die broke.”

“B@#$%, you trash.”

To tell someone to kill themselves and die broke is pretty terrible and demonstrates no class or self-control. Not only did Mitchell feed the fire, but he also managed to alienate all of Steelers nation. Pittsburgh is a blue-collar city and always has been. A coal mining monopoly until deindustrialization in the 1980’s, people in Pittsburgh know what it’s like to work for a living. A lot of people in Pittsburgh and in cities all over the country look forward to the weekend but predominantly Sunday because Sunday means football. Diehard fans are just as much a part of the team as the players and coaching staff.

Instead of him not saying anything and fans coming to his defense as I’m sure would have happened, Mitchell managed to give them all the finger as well as a good look at the indecent fool that he is. He’s probably best friends with LeGarrette Blount.

Well, what d’ya know? In an article regarding Blount being cut by the Steelers, Mitchell defended his ex-teammate.

“I actually know him and a lot of people don’t know him. He is not a selfish guy at all.”

How would you describe someone who leaves the team because they don’t get to be the star? A role model?

“He is a competitive guy who wants to be on the field, wants to win games, wants to help us win games.”

I don’t think Blount wants to be on the field, Mitchell. He left of his own free will. Therefore, I don’t think he wants to help the Steelers win games because in order to score points, he has to be on the field and the only way to get on the field is to wait patiently on the sideline, which he didn’t do.

I also find it pitiful that Mitchell said “wants to win games” before “wants to help us win games.” Sure, that’s just a word choice, but he consciously picked those words and it is attitude and personality that point you to the words you choose next. He put team at the end because that’s how he prioritizes it.

Mike Mitchell has demonstrated that he is a replica of Golden Tate. If there is one person in all of sports that I hope suffers an injury or gets a good punch from Andre Johnson, it’s Golden Tate.

Tony Romo was at the top of my list for a long time and right behind him was Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez and Alex Ovechkin. However, Kobe’s knee and ankle injuries have finally shut him up but not before he set the NBA record for most missed field goals, which I was thrilled about. Alex Rodriguez was suspended the entire season. MLB ¬†finally did something right. Alex Ovechkin has become a captain of a terrible team and has continued to be the puck-hog, “I don’t know how to pass” player I expected, which has led to multiple early playoff exits and missing the playoffs altogether. Finally, Tony Romo is still as untalented and useless as he was when he botched the extra point in that playoff game against Seattle, one of my favorite NFL memories.

With all that said, Tate is the worst. How he was ever accepted into Notre Dame I don’t know because he is one of the most disgusting, dishonorable and selfish pieces of turd in all of professional sports. During his career, he’s managed to play for the Seahawks, one of my least favorite teams because of all the cocky individuals on that team. Looking at you, Sherman. He said he caught a ball in the Seahawks-Packers game that the replacement refs botched, a ball that everyone with an unbiased mind can recognize he didn’t catch, demonstrating his lack of honesty and professional courtesy. Finally, he flicked off a player on his way to score a long touchdown on live television. That’s what I think of Golden Tate.

But back to Mitchell. Mike Mitchell, despite the fact that I couldn’t tell you almost anything about his playing career, has earned a spot on my Most-Hated Players List. Mitchell’s actions clearly demonstrated he couldn’t give a rat’s behind about the organization, the fans or his teammates. He cares about money and himself. Those seem to be his only two motivations. I hate people who are motivated by money and themselves. Therefore, I hate you Mike Mitchell. Be sure to “break a leg” out there.
